A federal appeals court has reinstated the jury convictions of three defendants for conspiring to defraud the Internal Revenue Service and maintain a charity’s tax-exempt status by hiding its ties to jihadist fighters. The court also affirmed the convictions on other counts of two of the defendants.
On Sept. 1, a unanimous panel of the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reinstated jury verdicts of conspiracy against Emadeddin Muntasser, Muhamed Mubayyid and Samir Al-Monla. Post-verdict, Judge F. Dennis Saylor IV of the District of Massachusetts had acquitted all three on the conspiracy charge. The 1st Circuit also affirmed the convictions on other charges of Muntasser and Mubayyid. It remanded the case for the resentencing of those two defendants and for the sentencing of Al-Monla, whom Saylor had acquitted of all charges. The cases are U.S. v. Muntasser; U.S. v. Mubayyid; and U.S. v. Al-Monla.
